The 35th annual Rotary auction is coming up on Sunday November 18th. Bidders will get the chance to purchase hundreds of items from generous donors across the Sarnia- Lambton region.
Rotarians are currently gathering all of the donations for the auction which will be placed online at www.rtva.ca in the coming weeks. Rotarians are still making all of their calls to donors so if you have not yet been contacted that will happen in the near future or call us at 519-490-1066.
Check out the website early and often as new items will be added right up to the start of bidding. If you want the excitement of a live auction and to learn a little bit more about the items up for sale tune into the live auction and see Rotarians and guest celebrities on camera. Bidding online is expected to open on Tuesday Nov 13th.
The auction will again be live on YourTV Channel 700 from 2 to 9 PM Sunday November 18. All items will be placed in a block and sold sequentially until the block closes. Online bidders can bid early and up until the bell rings at YourTV at the end of the block.
Auction items make a great Christmas gift. An online credit card purchase option will also be available this year making purchases easy and convenient. The item may be picked up at the Rotary office on 1210 Michigan road (beside Pathways).
"We are so very grateful for the support of our community in donating items for the auction." said Rotarian Jenny Greensmith who is one of the auction organizers.
Welcome back to all regular and new bidders - there are great deals and the on-line payment option is so convenient!
Rotary Club of Sarnia uses proceeds raised by the Rotary auction to benefit local projects, including the Clubís recently completed $1 million dollar pledge to Bluewater Health, and the $600,000 pledge to Pathways Health Centre for Children.
